Tubby..John..tells his side of the story.

(My Mom is helping me JUST a little bit. I'm doing most of the work, just in case you're wondering.) Last week, my parents decided to take a trip to Nashville. They left Benji, Carolyn and Katie behind and took me along. I'm not sure why I couldn't stay with Boppa too. Mommy says I require more 'supervision' than the other kids. Whatever that means. But Mommy and Daddy were happy to have me along.

Well, this trip to Nashville took FOR.EVER. I can't count very high, but all I did was sit, sit, sit, sit, and sit some more. I was very good. I never fussed about sitting. Not once. (I did get upset once, but that was because my Mom wouldn't let me chew on the quarters for the toll booth- she took a picture of that!) But besides that, I had a blast. I had Mom AND Dad all to myself. We went to alot of new places, met alot of people. I was a charmer. Mom put some pictures on here, of what I did during my week in Nashville....
I was feed and watered on a regular basis
After awhile, this got boring too. So I just played with the buttons. Mom said, "if it keeps him happy, I don't care" (What is that suppose to mean?)
Yeah, I slept for awhile. It was a LOONG drive. On the way home it took us about 13 hours. And we JUST stopped for gas, Arby's drive-thru.
I saw lots and lots and lots of cars and trucks go by.
Remember when I told you I got upset once... here's proof.
Yeah, I pretty much had control over the remote. No way was Mom going to make me watch those 'sissy' shows!
Some times at nap time, Mommy would lay down with me too. She likes to snuggle with me, or maybe she just wanted to rest.
It didn't take me long to figure out how to open the door. Daddy would be standing outside, so when I THOUGHT I was sneaking away from Mom, Daddy would jump out and tickle me. So.Much.Fun.
What a cute cowboy. Oh, wait! That's me!
We went to this great little music cafe. I made myself at home. Everyone loved me, so I played it up a little bit, and got EVEN more attention, and a ice cream cone, milkshake, cheeseburger, another milkshake... It was a fun trip. But I was so excited to see Benji, Carolyn and Katie when I got back home. I did my 'happy-to-see-you' dance and all that crazy stuff. Mom says she sure is glad to be back home. I guess I am too.Well, now you know the rest of "Tubby's" story..
